Tom Hardy might be Snow White's Huntsman

10.26.2010

I'm glad that Tom Hardy is shaping up to be the new Sam Worthington. While that guy had the square jaw required for most leads, it was quite apparent he was an Australian bricklayer a few years ago, and doesn't exactly have range as of yet.

Hardy contrastingly is being bred to be our next big A-lister, with a role in INCEPTION, the lead in the MAD MAX sequel, the first new part in BATMAN 3, he actually replaced the aforementioned Worthington in THIS MEANS WAR and now he possibly has a part in SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNSTMAN, as the titular huntsman.

The film is based off a script by Evan Daugherty and will be helmed by Rupert Sanders. The Playlist got a look at the script, and were quite enthused:

It’s actually very strong, one of the better action-adventure scripts we’ve read in a while. It’s faithful to the fairy tale, beat-for-beat, but manages to remain fresh and surprising in a way that, say, Burton’s film didn’t. And Hardy’s role, as Eric, the huntsman haunted by the death of his wife at the hands of a white wolf, is a doozy—tragic, heroic but with enough roguish charm to play to his strengths—and should see him move even further up the A-list.

Reportedly the film is looking for Angelina Jolie to be its Snow White, though there is a rival project out there THE BROTHERS GRIMM: SNOW WHITE, that could pose some problems unless this thing is fast tracked. It will also have to speed things along if Hardy is to be onboard, as he's going to be shooting his myriad of other films shortly.

Hardy has been getting some significant breaks lately in a lot of big name films, but he still seems to remain a bit underground, which I like. I would hate to see the day when he starts just doing roles for a paycheck.

It's weird, I've loved Hardy in everything I've seen him in so far, but I did not forsee his status going up as quickly as it has.

It would be kind of fun to see Hardy as a totally reinvented Penguin...

Jolie is no Snow White but she would be a great evil Queen.

Look at the picture above. Now put a gun in each hand, wrap his face in bandages & call him HUSH. He would be amazing at Hush. Hush would also fit right in to Nolan's Batman.

I knew Hollywood would recognize this Hardy. Especially after his great performance in "Bronson".

I doubt Hardy is the Riddler, but I definitely see him being Black Mask.

Sam Worthington! Don't make that comparison. Tom Hardy can actually act. Watch Bronson and see if that comparison makes any sense.

Bronson was a joke. Love Hardy, though.

If he is The Riddler, then I would be surprised because it doesn't seem right how this huge casting decision would already be confirmed. I think Nolan would want to make it more of a surprise.

Agreed. While I'm not totally versed in Batman lore, remembering how Cillian Murphy and Heath Ledger were against-type casting choices who had never before collaborated with Nolan, I've long suspected his lead villain will not be foreseen. Then again, Hardy is not a household name yet, and shows all sorts of promise (like Ledger and Murphy) so if he did take the role, then we still wouldn't know what to think. If JGL took it, I have a pretty decent idea how he'd approach things.

Snow White = No, Hardy = Yes

I'll watch it. Hardy is a fine actor and one I'll always watch ever since Bronson. No actor top that in the same year, IMO.

I love fairytales and if done right then this movie could be really good. Especially with Hardy in it. But instead of Jolie for Snow White, I'd rather have Zooey Deschanel.

It's just another regurgitation of a fairy tale, I'm not interested.
